Next to Thanksgiving, Chanukah is my second-favorite holiday. It’s a festive holiday that’s all about fun. It’s also a holiday that’s rich with tradition. In a lot of families, you can’t discuss tradition without mentioning food.
When I was a child, every year my mom made potato latkes for Chanukah. Now that I’m a mom, it’s something that’s very important for me to do for my own children. Every year, I break out the potatoes, onions and oil and fry a big platter of potato latkes. I have tried many recipes, but the one I keep coming back to is from the Mr. Food Test Kitchen and it’s the Perfect Potato Pancakes.
